We present near-infrared J,H,K and visible B,V,R images of the amorphous dwarf galaxy NGC 1705. The galaxy is assymetric extending further to the east than to the west. In the infrared images we detect three peaks which are of sufficient brightness to be globular clusters. The optical and infrared colors of the underlying galaxy are consistent with a composite stellar population similar to that of the bluest Sd galaxies. Optical and infrared colors of these clusters will be compared to LMC globular clusters.
